If you were supreme ruler at Sony...

I'm not asking what you want them to do, but what you think is the smarter business decision.

If I'm at Sony, I know people will buy the damn thing anyways, so why not just leave it at the same price. They would only steal a few XBox buyers, certainly not worth cutting the console a $100.

I'd lower it. With XBox on its way and GameCube just on the horizon it would be the smart decision to make....

I would raise the price about double and tell the consumer that we are charging that much because we have recently upgraded the warranty software.

I would play my modified version of Ace Combat 4, that has Bill Gates house in it, and drop cluster bombs on his house with my A-10, and anything that happens in the game happens in real life... r0x0r!!!!

keep the price the same and offer a manufacturer's [possible mail-in] rebate.

sneaky business tactics.

Lower the price. The most money out of every console is made buy selling games. More pple owning a PS2=selling more games.

Sony have already lowered the price in the uk, from £300 to £200. The x-box and gamecube are both expected to retail at £300, so the PS2 is the cheapest next-gen console in the uk

Forget the price cuts, spend the money on advertising.

No, not TV ads... go where the market is. Pay peanuts to half the kids in the primary schools to talk about hardly anything but the PS2. The other half will then want the PS2 just as a fashion accessory. Ahahahahahaha. Ahem.

(Well, it's better than some of the ads you get on TV today.)

Quite honestly I'd leave the price the same. Alot of kids are going to be askin for one for christmas and moms and dad's will buy it anyway. Then right after christmas I'd lower the price to pick up the stragglers that do their christmas shopping after the holidays.

If the kid really wants ps2 he/she probably wouldn't want an xbox or gamecube. So at the very least his parents would buy it after christmas when the price drops.

My personal opinion is that they should lower it NOW, but then I already own one so I really don't care.

GTA3 ownz!
